GARDENING IN A HEAT WAVE
It's been a trifle warm here of late, and the watering can has been pressed into action. Only a little gardening has been done as by mid morning its been too hot for me. It's not just the temperatures that have been rising, the colours have been getting hotter too.
1. The Long Border
The Monarda is practically subdued compared to this hot pink and orange combination further along the border, It's a 'red' phlox and a double orange Day Lily.
